It was great to see everyone yesterday! Corey was the most different. He was so tall and his voice was deep! That was strange (haha). Time always goes really fast when we get to Skype home. I don't have too much to report on because we just talked yesterday, but I’ll write a little bit.
There is a big lake in our area (Burke Lake) and we spent some time talking to people there a
ago. It is a good place to talk to people because they are just sitting on the
benches or taking a walk. It rained while we were there but we had our umbrellas.
It is a pretty big lake and I am hoping that we can round up some fishing poles
here soon and go fishing on a preparation day.

I read the talk by Brad Wilcox at a BYU devotional titled "His Grace is Sufficient". I have heard it before, but when I read it yesterday it really opened up my eyes and made me appreciate Jesus Christ so much more. I encourage you to read (or re-read) it. (http://speeches.byu.edu/?act=viewitem&id=1966). I have grown to love and appreciate the gospel so much! I finished reading the book "Jesus the Christ" a couple weeks ago. I think it is the longest book I have ever read by far (almost 800 pages) and I loved every page of it!
I have grown to feel like Nephi did “My soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart
them… my soul delighteth in the things of the Lord; and my heart pondereth
continually upon the things which I have seen and hear.” I am so thankful for this time to serve the Lord
and come to know him better.
